Celebrate National Afternoon Tea Week with these afternoon treats for a tasty price


GET out the good china – it’s National Afternoon Tea Week.

Who needs an excuse for tiny triangle sandwiches and cake?

Grab one of these great deals before they are scone . . . 

GO CLASSIC: At Birmingham’s Centenary Lounge, you can get tea for two for just £18 via Groupon, down from £30.

Locations nationwide are available with prices around the £32 mark at virginexperiencedays.co.uk.

THINK OUTSIDE OF THE (CAKE) BOX: Wowcher has an unbelievable amount of alternative afternoon tea experiences.

Harry Potter fans will love the wizarding afternoon tea, complete with potions, but it was the Burger Bites afternoon tea in London, with bottomless prosecco for two hours that caught my eye.

Usually £60 for two people, it is now £31 and you get cupcakes and tiny slider burgers, which sounds incredible.

TAKE A TEATIME DELIVERY: Many companies now deliver afternoon tea to your home.

Cutter & Squidge has a delightful Spring Afternoon Tea kit which includes two cheesecake brownies, two mini raspberry and orange loaf cakes, four buttery scones, pots of clotted cream, jam and loose tea for just £29.90.

But if you sign up to its newsletter, you get ten per cent off your first order.

AT HOME HEAVEN: Why not treat someone to an at-home afternoon tea? Aldi’s Specially Selected All Butter Scones, 89p, Strawberry Conserve, 99p, Cornish Clotted Cream, £1.39, and Diplomat Tea Bags, 55p, cost a total of £3.82 between two — just £1.91 per person.

Or take your afternoon tea to the next level by adding a bottle of Freixenet Italian Sparkling Rosé or Prosecco, currently on offer for Afternoon Tea Week with a Tesco Clubcard, down from £12 to £9.

BUDGET BUNS: Brighten up an afternoon and keep the kids busy with one of my fave budget bakes, the three-ingredient lemonade scones.

All you need is lemonade, cream and self-raising flour to make lovely fluffy scones.

Try the recipe at recipetineats.com/lemonade-scones.
